And you thought being a kid was complicated.

The first teaser for Pixar’s Inside Out 2 has been released, teasing the new arrival in Riley’s emotional headquarters now that she’s become a teenager: Anxiety, voiced by Maya Hawke. As anyone who’s… well, been a teenager can attest, Anxiety’s arrival — and, in fact, the journey into being a teenager as a whole — brings with it no small amount of chaos, which is what the teaser focuses on. Just wait, Riley: everything’s going to get a lot more complicated even when the dust settles.

Watch the teaser:

Disney’s official synopsis of the movie runs like this: “Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out 2” returns to the mind of newly minted teenager Riley just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust, who’ve long been running a successful operation by all accounts, aren’t sure how to feel when Anxiety shows up. And it looks like she’s not alone. Maya Hawke lends her voice to Anxiety, alongside Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, Tony Hale as Fear, and Liza Lapira as Disgust.”

Inside Out 2 will hit theaters Summer 2024.
